1/35th scale FRIES bar

Recommended Posts

Has anyone on here ever made a 1/35 FRIES bar? If so, can you post how you made it and maybe include some pics.

I don't even know where to begin!

Thanks

Which Fries rig?  USAf MH/60Gs and US Army MH-60Ls each use a different version.  I have scratched up both types before.  They are not that hard to do, just some square and round shapes cut to size and rings added, etc.

No issue.  That is the second pic down, and easier one to build.  Like I said, just some square and round stock, thin metal for the strap pieces, and blocks and rings for the self-releasing ends.  I built one for my MH-60L DAP a while ago.  Here it is:

WOW!! I just realized it was 13 years ago, almost to the day that I photographed it!  I still have it too.

The "USAF-style" is really called an H-Bar. It was replaced with the FRIES bar (Army-style) starting in the mid-2000's. All USAF HH-60Gs have the FRIES bar now.

When would they have been added to the HH's? Mine is going to be from the early '90s in Keflavik.

That time frame should still have the H-Bar rig.
